1. Was it because of the mercy of Allah that the Bani Israel still received so many favours even after they disobeyed Allah in refusing to fight the Amaaliqah.
2. Is it possible that although Allah was displeased with them and continued to make them wander, he still provided for them although he was displeased with them? Is it possible that this happens with us also? That although we don’t work towards propagating Deen, Allah still provides for us, but he is not happy with us?
2. There is no need to ask such questions. Allah Ta`ala looks at His servants, believers as well as unbelievers with compassion.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
